Thank you!

Looking at the annual average projected job growth, I’m wondering if that percentage is of the jobs within the specific training category or is it the percent of total projected job growth? So 0.7% for where a postgraduate degree is needed, is that .7% job growth within all the jobs currently needing a postgraduate degree, or is it .7% of all the jobs no matter training needed?
Brooke Dirtzu

The education slide shows annual average projected job growth by training required (for an occupation).
Kelly Asche
53:58
Okay, thank you! I was a bit surprised by that slide but now it makes sense. There probably aren’t a ton of jobs that require the level of training so any small growth would equal a rather large percentage change. Do you all provide the actual growth for each of those categories by the number of jobs?
Kelly Asche
54:37
If it’s in the report, I can find it there. Just wanted to check.
Brooke Dirtzu
57:24
That information is in several locations in the report. We look at the occupation supply gap.

This has been great Erin - I apologize that I have to drop off for a different meeting at 10:00. Take care everyone!

I’m surprised by Manufacturing seeing a negative growth rate.
Kelly Asche
01:27:57
Any reasons why this might be so?
Jeralyn Jargo
01:29:33
Great addition to your next app.
Brooke Dirtzu
01:36:32
Hey Kelly, total employment in Manufacturing is declining across the state. Declining 7.4% in the NW, 10% in the NE, 2.4% in the MSP Metro, 3.9% in Central MN.
Kelly Asche
01:38:55
Thanks Brooke.
Kelly Asche

The difference in skills in occupations that are experiencing unemployment compared to occupations that are going to experience growth.
Kelly Asche
01:46:11
That seems like a large skill gap.
Kelly Asche
01:47:35
The good news is that there are plenty of younger folks that were on the unemployment claims and have enough time for retraining.
Kelly Asche
01:47:57
Thanks for your response, Erin, on the manufacturing aspect. That makes total sense.
Kelly Asche
01:49:05
Providing programming online/virtual can cause a lot of problems for folks that have digital literacy gaps.
Kelly Asche
01:49:14
Something that needs attention, I think.
Tim Barrett
01:50:10
How do you see COVID-19 and the subsequent responses impacting current trends in workforce needs and educational delivery?
